Planning for a secure retirement can be challenging, but the sooner you start the easier it will be. It may feel like there are many demands on your income: credit card debt, school loans, car payments or your children’s education. Although it is important to save for these short-term goals, it is important to remember to save for long-term goals like retirement as well.
Here is one simple way to get you on the road to financial security. Join us as we explain how you can use EBSA’s new interactive worksheets to set goals, start a budget, manage debt, and determine how much to save for a secure financial future.
Our Savings Fitness webcast starts you on the way to setting goals and putting your retirement high on the list of personal priorities.
Who should attend? Anyone who wants to make saving for retirement a priority!
Research on so-called “undetected” rapists – men who commit rapes but who are either not reported or not prosecuted for their crimes – has clearly demonstrated that the old stereotypes about rapists are false. Undetected rapists, who represent the vast majority of rapists, and account for the vast majority of rapes, use extensive planning, often use alcohol and other drugs to render their victims vulnerable, and rely on minimal force to threaten and intimidate their victims into submission. A majority of these rapists are serial offenders, and the evidence suggests that they typically begin their offending careers during adolescence. Evidence also indicates that serial offenders account for more than 90% of all rapes. These data underscore the potential importance of testing non -stranger sexual assault kits and maintaining DNA databases derived from the processing of rape kits.Presenter: David LisakDr. David Lisak is a researcher and forensic consultant who for 25 years has studied the causes and consequences of interpersonal violence. His work has focused on the long term effects of sexual abuse in men, the relationship between child abuse and violence, and the motives and characteristics of rapists. Dr. Lisak has served as a consultant to judicial, prosecutor and law enforcement education programs across the country, and has conducted workshops in all fifty states. He consults widely with universities, the four services of the U.S. Military, the Department of Defense, and other institutions regarding sexual assault prevention and policies, and frequently serves as an expert witness in homicide and sexual assault cases. Dr. Lisak is a founding member of 1in6, a non-profit agency that serves men who were sexually abused as children.
The 2011 national Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign explores common, everyday behaviors and offers individuals viable, responsible ways to intervene. This primary prevention approach helps to create environments where people are safe in their relationships, families, neighborhoods, schools, work places and communities. This year’s SAAM brings together resources and information, thus offering everyone the opportunity to address behaviors before sexual violence occurs.
Survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking share private information with programs and advocates when they seek services. The extent to which their information remains private is central to a survivor's safety and empowerment.
When and how survivors may release their own personal information requires knowledge of the potential legal, ethical, and practical risks. Recent federal and state law changes and the rise of interest in tracking survivors' use of services has created challenges for programs and advocates who are trying to help survivors manage their confidential information.
This call will cover the following issues:
* Differences between a waiver of confidentiality or privilege and a release of information.
* When releases are required and where they are not appropriate orvalid.
* When and how releases can be helpful and how they can be harmful.
* How long releases should last.
* Whether releases are required to be in writing every time.
* What language or phrases are legally required in order for a release to be effective.
* Releases for individuals with court-appointed guardians and other complex cases.
* Whether releases from an outside agency are a valid basis for the release of advocate or program information.
* When programs are required to release information without a survivor signing a release.
